I’m going to be honest, I actually had to watch this episode twice, because I was too distracted by baseball to fully focus on the new episode the first time through. However, even without the distraction, the second time viewing the episode was not that much better.
I found myself bored and disconnected as a whole. The episode just felt flat, and predictable. They need new characters or something, because there are only so many height and gay jokes they can make about Han before it feels old and tired. Sometimes its still funny but other times you just see him and know its coming and then its just a matter of can the quips live up to your expectation for the moment or not.
I said I’d review this show for the first few episodes, so this might be my last review on the series, but we shall see.
“No Quarter” was good, but not great.
I can put my review of this show very simply…
Billy Burke, is incredible, completely badass and carries the entire show on his shoulders.
Crazy and highly capable
…that about sums up Person of Interest’s John Reese, but only to an outside eye. He is highly intelligent and deeply motivated, which makes watching each episode all the more exciting.
The second season of CBS’s sophomore drama started off really well. It had all the makings of a great hour of television:
Thrilling adventure, check.
Kick-ass action sequences, check.
A sense of humor, check.
Sass, excitement, unpredictability, charm, check, check, check, check.
“La O Na Makuahine” picks up where the adrenaline packed season finale left off, leaving viewers no time to stop and breath during the hour episode. I guess waiting the entire summer for the rest of the story was a break enough.
The season three premiere was action-packed and dramatic from start to finish. I can’t even believe it’s season three already, time flies. I remember when the show was just a little pilot and I was grieving over the loss of Lost. (Something’s never change).
My favorite part of Revolution are the technology and media related jokes.
I hate Dora the Explorer, but Charlie’s mother’s use of it to explain how they were going to just keep walking was perfect. I’ve never heard or seen a better use of that show. I don’t know why, but that deeply amused me.
My second favorite thing is Miles. Billy Burke is fantastic. He is a scene stealer… actually he pretty much steals the whole show to be honest.
I really enjoyed season one as a whole, but there were times when the show took the level off comedy really low. The opening sequence of tonight’s episode “And the Hidden Stash” echoed that sentiment to me. Yes, I know the breast feeding/age issue has been highly publicized of late, with a seemingly increasing level of older children still feeding, but I’m with Caroline, it kind of makes me sick. The dead twin/doll thing with Sophia really was awful too.
I meant to post this on Monday, then Tuesday, and so on, but I never got around to writing it. I will try to be better in the future. Although as previously posted I will be covering Hawaii Five 0 first, then Revolution if I have time. For now, I have to get back into the pattern of writing up my thoughts as soon as I finish watching the show.
In every life there comes a day of reckoning, a time when unsettled scores demand their retribution, and our own lies and transgressions are finally laid bare.
ABC promised a shocking finale, and I can now safely say they made good on that claim.
I was sitting here trying to figure out what to say, while casually browsing my tumblr dash when I saw the gif below used to describe tonight’s season three Glee finale. It is quite possibly the best, one sentence explanation of what appeared on my television tonight.
As nervous and anxious as the end of the season and renewal time makes me, I’ve come to the conclusion that it should always been this time of year. The quality of television, on a whole, has vastly improved. While I love the actors of this CBS drama, I had a hard time getting into the first half of the season, but lately the show has been keeping a good pace. The stories have been interesting, and the format has even changed slightly each week to accommodate the newest number. I appreciate that it various.
“No Good Deed” follows Reese and Finch as they track Henry Peck, who seems like a private, reclusive man, until they discover he works for the NSA and has made a shocking discovery.
